Australian Mammals, 1970, series 691

This is the second book in the Animals of the World series, 691. It was both written and beautifully illustrated by John Leigh-Pemberton.   There were 7 books in the series, covering the mammals of the main continents and then with an additional volume ‘Air and Sea Mammals’.  The artwork and research in these books is superb – probably Leigh-Pemberton’s tour-de-force for Ladybird.  Sadly, it’s not a well-known series today and so goes rather unappreciated.

This copy:

This matt copy is in good condition.  There’s some minor spine damage – a split – head of spine and a foxing spot that goes throught the preliminary pages onto the first text page – otherwise it’s in nice, clean condition inside and out. It dates to around 1970 and has a revised price on the back.  With a tally number of 250, I believe it to be a first edition.
